Baker. Pootiuuslcr Baker stressed the ui o «.tiiy ox each mad user in the .'Uiivit Postal Dist.ict becoming thoroughly familiar with his zone number, and using that numoer in his return address, if he is not already doing so. ‘ The postal zone numbers, when coupled with a three-digit num ber to be given the city post of fice, will lorin this city s ZIP- Code—a system by which some out-of-town mail deliveries will be sped by as much as 24 hours. “Use of local zone numbers will not only speed your mail, through the nutional ZIP-Code program," Postmaster Baker no ted, “but will substantially re duce the possibility of missent mail. For example, in our com munity we have several streets with similar names. Each of us writes a different hand, and in some cases—especially when we are rushed—our handwriting is not the most legible thing m the world. Postmaster Baker said an up to-date Postal Zone Map appears in the yellow pages of the tele phone directory. “If you don’t know your zone number, find it in the yel’ow of your nhone book, and begin using it today!” he said.
